VSO’s 2023-2024 season opener begins with its first-ever performance of Coleridge-Taylor’s ravishing ballade, with Smetana and Brahms completing the Romantic concert theme. Cellist Joshua Roman and violinist Simone Porter make their Vermont debuts. This concert is conducted by VSO Music Director Andrew Crust.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and is preceded at 6:30 p.m. by Musically Speaking, a free pre-concert discussion that provides entertaining insight into the evening’s program.

“[Porter’s] assured, lovingly lyrical, occasionally frisky playing only confirmed what is becoming common knowledge in the musical world: that she is on the cusp of a major career.”
Mark Swed, LA Times

“Roman’s flawless cello lines were seemingly effortless expressions of a soul captivated by some great beauty.”
The Columbus Dispatch
